Just to clear something up a bit on the Crusaders name. Tom Benson couldn't even prounounce the last syllable before it would be rejected by the NBA. In our own little Christian bubble that we live in, "crusade" generally connotes bravery, or at least it is assumed to be a positive word. Globally, outside of the Christian world, it's not so positive. And to Muslims, it's outright antagonistic (would YOU want to play for a team nicknamed the Jihadists? Because THAT would probably be the reverse equivalent). The NBA isn't going to even think about considering a team name like Crusaders, when the league has grown so much globally in the last few decades....especially when the Hornets currently have a Muslim on the team.
